    I worked at PSEG as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely welcoming team, never felt like I was an intern, did meaningful work

    Cons

    Like all internships, sometimes you may not have anything to work on, but the people I worked with tried hard to make sure that wasnt the case

    Advice to Management

    HR should do more intern events to help meet each other, HR was not very good at communicating with us before the internship started.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to excel and succeed
    Upward mobility
    Great people
    This company will not let you fail as long as you give them your best!

    Cons

    Benefits could use a little work
    Aging workforce, many of the workers that were hired in the 80s are retiring and they did little to hire ahead of these people leaving, this is creating huge knowledge gaps and could have been prevented.

    Advice to Management

    Hire ahead of attrition and retirements

    Pros

    Superb executive leadership team; highly dedicated employees; genuine attitude of service to the community, to employees, and to shareowners. Compensation on par, or better, than peers in the industry. Safety always a #1 priority.

    Cons

    Sometimes high pressure - especially during annual "budget season." Sometimes irregular hours / days due to severe weather events so as to ensure business continuity, quick service restorations, and infrastructure congruity.

    Advice to Management

    Steady ahead . . .
